The hotel is only 15 minutes by car from the airport. Many people hire a car for their holiday from the airport, or get a taxi that will cost about 15€. The hotel is situated on the south side of Caleta de Fuste, off the FV-2 road. So from the airport follow the signs south for Caleta de Fuste along the FV-2. In Caleta de Fuste there are two roundabouts – go straight on at the roundabout with the castle on it, and then go straight on at the roundabout in central Caleta. This road will then take you 1km along to the next roundabout, where you turn left in front of the Atlantico Commercial Centre. Take the second right at the roundabout and drive along the road that runs parallel to the FV-2 and the hotel reception is 400m on the right
